on earth. thank you, god bless you and god bless theses united states. god bless you is good but a caught that caught my ear. when he said. the road may be longer. now let me think about that. four years ago we started on the same road. four years later, the road is longer? how deco does a road get longer if you are traveling on it four years already. does that mean we have gone back wards and we will try again to catch up. maybe that would tell us what we need to know in november if we are further behind as we started on the road just a thought from my part. >> all week long democrats are asked to decide if americans were better off than they were four years ago. >> president obama took office and the economy was in free fall and shrunk nine full percent of the gdp and losing 750,000 jobs a month. are we doing better than that today? the worry is yes. >> that is a big surprise. i am glad he revealed that to us. 23 million americans out of work and 365,000 out of the work force i guess a lot of us are not seeing it all stack up that we are doing better. gas is twice as high as four years
in the united states but insufficient overseas. everyone continues to worry that another recession may very easily be around the corner given the slow down we're seeing. china has slowed down. brazil has slowed down. the big bric countries are not growing as rapidly. corporations are shepherding that cash. not willing to make full time commitments. the fed may try the stimulate next week, european central bank made a big announcement yesterday. this may help to turn things around. >> ron, always great to see you. breaking the unemployment rate down by race. african-american unemployment stands at 14.1%. unchanged from last month, down a year ago when it was in the 16% range. hispanic unemployment at 10% down by 1.1% from a year ago and .1% from last month. back to the campaign trail. they are off to new hampshire and iowa. that's today. we give you a look at the home stretch strategy important the president and vice president. most emotional moment at the convention, hands down, did you see it, former congresswoman gabrielle giffords. talk to us. tell us what your favorite moment was from t
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
, there is not a liberal america or a conservative america, but a united states of america. >> reporter: he has made a sport of outspeaking the adversary. >> john mccain says that he would like to follow osama bin laden to the gates of hell, but he won't follow him to the gates where he lives. >> reporter: and yet he faces the biggest challenge tonight, can barack obama top barack obama? >> the expectations game tonight works against the president. it is a speech that will be compared to the '08 speech. >> reporter: obama comes from a long line of presidential party candidates who faced similar challenges. recall bill clinton's snoozer of a speech. >> in closing -- [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: became history when it was replaced by the 1992 rousing speech. >> i have news for those defenders of greed and the status quo, your time has come and gone. >> reporter: it is up to obama to live up to clinton's second successful convention speech. >> tonight, let us resolve to build that bridge to the 21st century to meet our challenges and protect our values. >> the president has to make a case for h
and commitments of the united states. i think the american jewish voters who support obama resonate to, whether wisely or not, they see in him a character whose values are in line with them and then will trust that his support for israel will get there. do i think a lot of people how have reason to question that the last three and a half years. yes, do i think the numbers are going to go down. >> yes. do i think that the obama campaign should worry about that. and not worry about it because of what it says about american jews. i think that america should worry about it because it says if they are weak about the relationship with israel that's not a jewish vote that's an american security thing that weakens all of us. >> i've got to bring up the issue of president obama's what some see as an apparent tilt towards muslims in the middle east. that's an apparent tilt. apparently to a lot of people, not to mention the refusal to meet with bb netanyahu. >> which i think was a terrible mistake. >> doesn't that lower the number of proportion of the jewish vote for president obama? >> i think it will. >
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by the reality that she's not a world leader yet. >> hoover, you're great. thank you. >> thanks. have fun down there. >> all right, so cnn's prime time coverage of the national convention will kick off tonight with wolf blitzer and anderson cooper and during the 10:00 hour, bill clinton is going to address the delegates and a lot of people have been waiting on this speech. at midnight, piers morgan is going to wrap up the first night of the democratic national convention and it will be terrific from top to bottom. but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. exclusive to the military, and c
and speaking on behalf of the president of the united states. we'll hear from john kerry around 9:00. a lot of people saying he could be the next secretary of state of the united states. then, of course, vice president joe biden. always interesting, krystal, introducing the president. >> certainly. and luke, speaking of joe biden, he is no bill clinton, but they do have a similar style in a way. they both sort of prefer ad libbing to the teleprompter. john heilman said, in a business full of blow dried atom tons, he, biden, is a vivid, authentic human being. i was wondering, what do you think we can expect from joe biden tonight? >> interestingly enough, the fact joe biden is speaking in the 9:00 p.m. hour is fascinating. usually vice presidents get their own primetime address. the obama campaign saw fit to put him in the 9:00 p.m. what's his best strength for president obama? it's connecting to white, working class voters. you often hear the story from joe biden. just a kid from scranton, p.a., trying to make it in the tough, tough world. that's the message he'll resonate on the president'
're running to be president of the united states. that's how it goes. and a lot of what you're seeing with the romney campaign right now is when you have sort of cascading failure. you're getting people, you know, tommy thompson said yesterday, why am i going down in polls? what do you think? i'm running with mitt romney. that doesn't help. you start having morale problems, and, you know it can all go pretty bad. the point, tim was making about, about romney's strategy, coming in late. that's a pretty perilous strategy. what obama has done is similar to what the clinton campaign did in '96. they spent tons of money early to define bob dole. by the time bob dole got around and campaigned, everybody kind of had a sense he was, you know, newt gingrich's mini me, basically and it was over for him. >> and then to the question of money, tim, you know, if you look like you're in a really tough spot and things could change with the first debate, a lot of people think that could be sort of a turning point in this race, but do your supporters run to you and say, okay. we need to get him out of
: and group based in pakistan could be joining a notorious 700 club. the united states getting ready to decide whether the haqqani deserves to be tagged as a terrorist o. and keeping mosquitoes away this labor day weekend. we've got the best bug sprays courtesy of "consumer reports." >> rick: we begin with politics. presidential race back into high gear on this, the first weekend after the republican national convention. both candidates making a major push for votes in swing states. president obama an hour away from attending his second rally of the day in iowa. governor mitt romney and congressman paul ryan wrapping up a campaign stop? jacksonville. now more. we know how important the undecideds are, but governor romney is pitch to go persuadable voters to, right? >> yes. we're hearing from some top republican researchers that there may be a bloc of voters out there that voted for obama in 2008 who first -- but could be convinced to vote for mitt romney if they are nudged by somebody that they know and like. well, mitt romney seemed to be going about the task part of the time yesterday asking
in business and financial debt in the future. it will sink our economies, all of us, europe, united states, everybody. lori: harry dent, many thanks for your time and analysis. your forecasting is always great. melissa, chorus is growing louder of private debt bubbles. he makes a great point. melissa: he really does. when comes to gold competitiveness the u.s. is failing again. up next find out where we rank and why the drop and we'll get the take from lou dobbs on all of it. lori: i mentioned in the shot that european yields are coming down. here in the u.s. they're unchanged. we saw buying earlier on some weaker, if you will, economic news. the productivity was sky-high but of course wage growth was muted that is a huge disappointment. our bosses are squeezing everything they can out of us. back with more after this. lori: you're going to get in hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> i'm cher
the president of the united states needs mr. clinton to help him with that narrow sliver of undecided voters, especially women ages 30 to 50 who grew up with bill clinton as sort of their teenage or childhood president. that's important. the second thing is is that bill clinton and hillary clinton need barack obama. they need him to perform strongly and to do well, because if barack obama loses and loses on the scale of a carter, that is very bad for the democratic brand for years to come and that is not helpful to a, perhaps, nominee or presidential candidate hillary clinton. so on many levels, this is -- they are living vicariously off each other and through each other, and as i said to a buddy of mine back stage a minute ago, clearly they are carrying each other's bags now and that's probably not a bad thing for today's politics. >> one of the interesting tidbits in this new yorker story looks at the -- pardon me. one of the interesting tidbits, sorry, i was hearing something in my ear there. one of the interesting tidbits looks at clinton's strategic advice to barack obama. look, you att
promise he'd made to the american people. >> madam speaker, the president of the united states. >> obama decided this was an issue he needed to take on early in his presidency or forfeit it entirely. >> chris, picking up your co commentary there, how much of this fight is still about the president's decision on health care reform? >> well, i think the republicans think it's a bad thing. even though it's something that american presidents have really argued for since the days of teddy roosevelt. certainly all progressives, all of them including harry truman and kennedy and johnsens and going back to both roosevelts. it's something that's always been on the progressive agenda and never been realized. of course conservatives are opposed to it. they were opposed to social security and medicare and medicaid and unemployment composition and child labor laws and minimum wage. i was just reading this book about the young winston churchill in the early part of last century. the politics haven't changed. they haven't changed. it's the same old arguments. predictable opposition to social progress.
. >> in the sense that china is slowing down, europe is a mess, a lot of foreign capital coming to the united states, whether it's real estate. equities, treasuries, and worst still the united states, the bad lot. people are going to maintain them and we're outperforming and many versus india and russia and the money is slowing out of the u.s. and you see the money coming here. so far so good. and the scenario is right about bernanke being proactive and the money keeps coming. >> every time you come to the program, a great guest for us to have and we appreciate that. you said, look, go for the big name, international companies, are you still there? >> still there because we like the global footprint and the core competencies and the global brand. it takes decades, good management and core competence to build that out. and apple, ge, ibm, not recommending those, they're good global brands around for 50, 100 years, and they're going to be around for another hundred years. >> joe, good stuff. we appreciate it, thank you so much. sir. time for the gold report. almost at 950 eastern. where are we now? lo
for -- israel, i am one of us recognizes there may have to be some alterations. but for the united states and the democratic party, the incumbent president to unilaterally make a determination that that is no longer the case, that jerusalem is not the capitol is coming to me, such a bad sign to the rest of the world and the arabs that it gave me great discomfort and real pause. >> and it's scary. nuclear bombs so close. you suggest israel may have to stand alone. what is the likelihood that the u.s., let alone the rest of the world steps up? >> don't think it will stand alone, but this was a political mistake, a substantial mistake, and something that i think the democrats wish they had back. lori: i wish i had more time. thank you. up next, bill clinton's speech. we go to the in-box. here to talk about his blockbuster 2016 obama's america .
as the united states prepares to commemorate 9/11 and as the war in afghanistan is an issue in the presidential race. joining me now is evan coleman. we say it's an issue in the presidential race. actually, you know the headline out of the past two weeks. mitt romney did not mention afghanistan in his big speech. his people said he gave the speech the day before right before that. with that said, are you surprised we're not talking about afghanistan more as it relates to it? >> i'm not. it's politically unpopular. no candidate wants to get up and say, i'm very aggressive in favor of a continued presence in afghanistan. nobody wants to say that. mitt romney is smart enough to understand that. >> let me talk about the prisba prison. how do we process this? >> we were what happened to abu ghraib in baghdad. it's not good to have prisons in foreign countries. the problem is this. number one, the afghan government has a terrible record in terms of keeping control of the prisons. >> there have been breakouts. >> huge breakouts back a few years ago in kandahar, someone blew a hole in the side of the p
it on tape for the first time a political party in the united states, major political party comes out with guy marriage. this is an unequivocal call, a call for comprehensive immigration reform. again, driving up support among those groups. that's the news out of here today. the other thing i would just mention, i was going to hold up some buns for you guys, that i picked up down here. msnbc is putting pictures of all of the much buttons and people around here, the crowd here, can pick out their favorite one. i was going to bring krystal and toure and s.e. i stopped by the counter and they said, those are all sold out. we have a about a dozen of the kornacki ones left. >> right. >> that not true. >> i know that's not true. >> i shutter to think what they are doing with my buttons down there. let's bring in former -- >> he are pushing your buttons. >> let's bring in ed rendell, when al gore was running and he was named america's governor. governor, how is the dnc this year? we remember the pageant try of 2008. how does the dnc this year celebrate the president, celebrate the party, cel
. japan's doing it. europe's doing it. the united states is doing it. and guess what? they are not going to change. end of discussion. stuart: tres, you make so much sense, direct and to the point, we kind of like that. thank you very much. see you soon. the democrats pushing the same message they did over 30 years ago, especially on taxes. here's president carter from 1980. >> the republican alternative is the biggest tax give away in history. they call it -- [inaudible]. i call it a free lunch that americans cannot afford. the republican tax program offers rebates to the rich -- [inaudible]. stuart: i got deja vu all over again, biggest tax give away in the history, rebates to the rich and deprivation for the poor, does that sound familiar? mike reagan is here, author of the reagan revolution. there's a direct parallel in what president obama keeps on saying today and what jimmy carter said 32 years ago. direct? >> you get the idea the same speechwriter is alive and well and writing speeches today as he was writing speeches back for jimmy carter. it never changes. and they keep on thro
. this is blowing up in the face of the democratic party. if the president of the united states tonight continues with a theme of, elizabeth warren, and, the sudden populist drive of former president bill clinton clinton, election may be not close at all because the american people don't want to hear about us and them, telling them that the system is rigged. what they want is a fair, square deal. all they had to do was go back and look at the history of the democratic party. this isn't it. this is an anomaly. this is a departure. melissa: she is right the system is rigged. rigged against anybody that goes tout there to try to earn some money because the government is going to take it away from you. she is right but won the exact wrong point or conclusion. >> i have advice, since you prompt me in that direction for the republicans. republicans shouldn't get in a whine-off with the democrats. big boys and girls run big companies in this country and small business. it is time for everybody to stop the whining and get moving. what we desperately need in this country is a leader, in the senate, in the
